  Are your job hunting shoes stuck in quicksand?
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
It’s pretty understandable that people often go into a panic when they lose their job. The tough part is helping them remobilize and develop a plan for what happens next, instead of taking wild potshots at job postings in their quest to become reemployed. Many times a candidate gets so focused on “getting a job” that they start to believe they will magically find and secure a job in one stroke. (Imagine a hunter with a spear f...
 
  Contacting agency recruiters only when you need a job? That is not networking.
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
Recently I read a “success story” written by someone who was very proud of their networking efforts to get a new job. They had simply sent their resume to a handful of recruiters and waited to see what came back. In a matter of weeks, an interview was arranged and they accepted a contract position. The problem is that they had not learned much about the company in advance of the interview and only knew what the company’s websi...
 
  Do you know why you are unemployed?
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
If you are thinking this is a dumb question, you may want to think again. Unless you are aware of the circumstances that led to your layoff or termination and are also very clear about your current market value, you’ll be unable to craft a strategy for moving forward. Although statistics may show there are more jobs available this year, what you actually do and how you do it will play a significant part in determining whether...
 
  Employment therapy Rᵪ
by Sherri Edwards - Nov, 2015
When one of my clients strays from the plan we have set forth, the fallout might be a frantic email asking what they should do because a situation has started to go south. It’s my job to help them dig their way out of whatever they got themselves into. It won’t work to tell them to “Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.” I need to be there with a safety net, a remedy, and sometimes a crystal ball. In addition to assi...

  An active professional network is like insurance
by Sherri Edwards - Jul, 2015
In an ever-changing economic market, or riding the wave through industry changes, you just never know when you might need to rely on your professional network to help bail you out of a rough patch. Maintaining a professional network is like having car insurance – it’s a pretty big risk to drive without it. Your network is your safety net. And like insurance, it requires an investment that can’t lapse. Without it, the costs can...
 
  Procrastination works against you
by Sherri Edwards - Jul, 2015
There will never be more than 24 hours in a day. No matter how much we hope, wish or pray, it just can’t happen. The issue with casually brushing something off to do “later,” at an undetermined “better time,” is that it often becomes assurance it won’t get done at all. For many people, procrastination seems like it is done unconsciously, but it really is a conscious decision or choice not to do something. When you make the...
 
  Sometimes you need to step back to get ahead
by Sherri Edwards - Jul, 2015
It happens all the time. A candidate has 8–10 years of experience doing something and wants to change into an entirely new role and new field. The requirements to compete for a senior-level role in the new arena are extremely high and impossible to match when there is no specific evidence of performance in the same function. Although the circumstances may seem the same, being capable and being competitive are two entirely diff...
 
  Be someone people are happy to refer
by Sherri Edwards - Apr, 2015
There are professionals who match people to jobs or business opportunities and others who connect people with similar interests. Professional associations or academic institutions may match mentors with mentees. All around us are opportunities to link people with people, or people to information. The success of these referrals is typically predicated on how much the referring party knows about each of the others. Everyone w...
